Is It A Match Made In Heaven?
I thought we could look at and explore which astrological signs are meant to be compatible and what happens when they’re not.
First, let me give you an example: Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are meant to be compatible with Earth signs (Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo). “Why are they meant to be compatible?” I hear you ask. Well, to understand that you need to look at the elementals which are Water and Earth and add a little logical and practical juju to the mix. When you pour a glass of water onto the ground the water soaks in to the earth so it could be said that water finds it’s home in earth.
Let’s look at another example: The Water signs as above and the Fire signs (Aries, Sagittarius, Leo). When you look at the elementals of these it’s quite a different story. If you pour a glass of water on fire, providing the fire isn’t a blazing inferno the water would put the fire out. So when we’re looking at compatibility it could be said that water signs dampen down a Fire signs spirits. The energies don’t exactly complement each other.
Let’s look at some of the other astrological signs. For example air signs, (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) and the Fire signs I mentioned earlier. This would be a better match because Air as an element feeds fire!
So with that information to hand you can look at your partner (or potential partner) and get an idea of whether or not the two of you would be compatible based on your sun sign elements. For the most part this works really well. But what about when it goes wrong?
The thing with astrology is that it is so in depth and intricate that a real astrological reading will not only look at sun sign compatibility and the elements, but also at your Moon sign, Venus, Mercury, Mars etc. If some of these don’t match up, or even create challenging aspects (squares), then it could make a potentially good match between a Pisces and Taurus become a little trickier.
I’m going to show how you can overcome these challenges with a little insight from the Tarot: Let’s say you are a Pisces and your partner is a Taurus. On the surface this looks to be a great match (water finds it’s home in earth remember) but there’s some little niggles starting to show in the relationship and your Taurean partners’ stubbornness is beginning to make you have second thoughts. So let’s see what insight we can gain on this for you from the Tarot and how you can navigate this challenging aspect. I drew two cards and pictured this hypothetical match. On this occasion those cards were The Chariot and The Empress.
The Chariot and The Empress
Both of these Tarot cards are Major Arcana cards and as such they show a phase of life and life lessons. The Chariot card talks of control, while the Empress talks about feminine energy and going with the flow. Two very opposing cards in many respects.
The message from the Tarot in this instance is that even though you may like to take the lead in the relationship and have been very independent and self sufficient in the past, the best way forward with your tenacious Taurean is to now and then let him take the lead while you slip quietly into your feminine energy, that of going with the flow. It’s about balance, and it clearly shows that two people directing a relationship forwards will soon get into a battle.
So with a little Wisdom from the Tarot you are shown you that relinquishing control to your partner now and then will balance the energy and help things to flow along much easier. It will create harmony and happiness in a relationship that otherwise could have been heading for a power struggle.
This is just one example of how the tarot can be an amazing tool when paired with astrology! If you would like your very own reading, feel free to give me a call!
